Knowledge Exchange - Inclusion in HE
Thursday 16 March 2023

We connect British and Dutch higher education institutes to exchange knowledge and create new connections. We do this through facilitating policy dialogues, webinars and events on topics of mutual interest.

Our next Knowledge Exchange discussion will be on the topic of creating an inclusive environment in Higher Education and will be held on 16 March 2023. A panel from Netherlands and United Kingdom will share their experience. All participants will also be able to give their input into the discussion. 

The event will include a screening of one of the Five Films for Freedom. Five Films for Freedom is a British Council partnership with BFI Flare in which people are encouraged to watch the films in solidarity with LGBTIQ+ communities, particularly in places where freedom and equal rights are limited in recognition of the fact that Love is a Human Right.
